Meet and greet

My name is Susanna Averpil. I'm working as a User Experience Designer.

What does that mean? Well, interaction design, in sense of human-computer interaction, is about shaping things for people’s use. It's about satisfying the needs and desires of the majority of people using a product or service. That said, an interaction designer has to keep human behaviour, emotions, business goals and layout in mind to succeed.

Since 2008 I have been working in agencies in Stockholm and New York with customers like Electrolux, SAS, M&M, Bonnier, Pernod Ricard, Telia, Volkswagen, PwC, MTV and the Royal Opera. I went to Hyper Island and is a certified Scrum Master.

I am passionate about creating solutions that are simple and fun to use. To make something difficult easy. I'm used to work in agile processes with teams and I love to be close to the development. Continuously I want to make user tests and prototypes to ensure we find the best solution. I’m happiest when I get to co-create with like-minded in an open and playful atmosphere.

Surprise me, I love surprises

It's important for me to constantly get new impressions and surprises to evolve as a designer and person. I have been practising music for almost my whole life. I played the violin in a symphonic orchestra. When I was 14, my parents bought me my first guitar which was the starting point of composing my own music. I later on attended high school of music, went to film school and had big plans to become a film composer. Eventually I learned that the industry wasn't that easy. Today I love to play and record music in my small home studio. My deep passion for composing music for film is something I love to do during longer weekends.

During 2017 I also attended an online MasterClass within Film Scoring with Hans Zimmer.

I also love science, especially space-related science. I love how we are able to launch rockets, how we can observe the universe with the Hubble telescope. I believe the core in my work has to be exploration. I simply see myself as an explorer and gatekeeper.
